Its ratings success and Dating batman cars can be blue acclaim led the series to spawn two feature films: SubZero a direct-to-video release in The series took influence from Tim Burton 's live-action films, Batman and Batman Returnsand the acclaimed Superman theatrical cartoons produced by Fleischer Studios in the early s.
The visual style of the series was based on the artwork of Radomski, and the gothic look of Gotham City was derived from his initial designs. The series initially took a variation of music written by Danny Elfman for the Burton films as its theme; later episodes of the series used a new theme with a similar style by Shirley Walker Walker was occasionally Elfman's conductor for films.
The score of the series was influenced by Elfman's work on the Burton films, as well as music of s film noir. The series is more adult-oriented than many of the previous superhero cartoons. It depicts outright physical violence against antagonists, including realistic firearms though only one character, Commissioner Gordonwas even depicted as having been shot, in the episode "I Am the Night". First-time producers Timm and Radomski reportedly encountered resistance from studio executives, but the success of Burton's first film allowed the embryonic series to survive long enough to
Dating batman cars can be blue a pilot episode, " On Leather Wings ", which, according to Timm, "got a lot of people off our backs".
Burnett also intended to make an episode featuring a female vampire that would bite Batman to suck his blood, but plans never materialized. The series is also notable for its supporting Dating batman cars can be blue known actors provided voices for a variety of recognizable villains, most notably Mark Hamill previously famous for his role as
Dating batman cars can be blue Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy finding success in voice acting thanks to his "cheerfully deranged" portrayal of the Joker.
Hamill, who found himself to be the biggest fan of the Batman comics among the cast, credited the laughs he had honed on stage in Amadeus with landing him the role. This method would later be employed for all subsequent series in the DC animated universe. Al Pacino was considered to voice Two-Face in the series, but he declined the offer. One of the series' best-known inventions is the Joker's assistant, Harley Quinnwho became so popular that DC Comics later added her to mainstream Batman comic book continuity.
The Penguin underwent change for the series; his appearance was remodeled after the version seen in Batman Returnswhich Dating batman cars can be blue in production simultaneously with the series' first season. New life was also given to lesser-known characters for the series such as the Clock King. In addition, dramatic changes were made to other villains such as Clayface and Mr. Freezewho was changed from a gimmicky mad scientist to a tragic figure whose "frigid exterior [hid] a doomed love and vindictive fury".
On the other hand, the Joker 's accomplice Harley QuinnGotham City police detective Renee Montoyathe vigilante Lock-Upand former actor Simon Trent achieved such popularity that they became characters in the comics.
Older villains that were lesser known from the comics, such as Count Vertigothe Mirror Man and the Clock Kingwere modified for the series in both appearance and personality.
The series is also the first to suggest that Harvey Dent had a pre-existing dual personality before becoming Two-Face. This idea came from Alan Burnettone of the series' producers and head writers. Aside from creating characters that crossed over into the main line of DC Comics, several of the series' reinterpretations were carried over as well. Freeze was revised in the comics to emulate the series' tragic story, the success of which actually compelled DC to bring the character back after "killing" him off some years earlier.
Clayface was revised to be much more similar in appearance to his animated counterpart; and Two-Face's double-sided, black-and-white suit has become a common appearance for the character. In nearly all other media, including the comics, television shows and films, Bruce deliberately plays up his image as a vacuous, self-absorbed and not-too-bright billionaire playboy.
Kevin Conroy used different voices to distinguish between his portrayal of Bruce Wayne and Batman, a tactic used previously by Michael Keaton in Tim Burton 's live-action films. The series also redefined the original RobinDick Grayson. While much of Dick's past remains the same, his Robin costume is modernized with short sleeves and long tightsexactly like Tim Drake 's original Robin outfit but with a non-italicized "R" symbol.
In addition, Dick is given a more serious and mature personality to match the tone of the series. The episode "Batgirl Returns" establishes that Dick and Barbara Gordon attend the same college and that they have a mutual romantic attraction to each other, but neither one knows the secret identity of the other. Barbara Gordon makes her first appearance as alter ego Batgirl
